Three Things: Power surge :: USCHO.com Blogs :: Atlantic Hockey Blog :: U.S. College Hockey Online

Power surge One statistic stands way, way out in Rochester Institute of Technology’s sweep of Niagara: success with the man advantage. The Tigers scored a whopping eight power play goals in the series, including a school record six in a 7-1 win on Friday. RIT went six for 10 with the man advantage in that one, and followed it up with two more power play goals in five chances in Saturday’s 6-2 victory. Liam Kerins…

It was also the first career win for sophomore Guillaume Therien, who was a hard-luck 0-13-3 coming into the contest. “We didn’t make it easy for him,” said Burkholder. “We had a 3-0 lead early and then nine minutes into…

Despite youth movement, Robert Morris’ progress ahead of schedule :: USCHO.com :: U.S. College Hockey Online

It was supposed to take a while for Robert Morris to recover from last season. The Colonials, thanks in part to a large senior group that set team records and boasted multiple all-league award winners, led Atlantic Hockey wire to wire last season, winning 24 games before bowing to RIT in the championship game. Nine freshman were brought in, and a large rookie class often leads to a slow start. But the Colonials are on…

Atlantic Hockey coaches love to talk about parity, that on any given night, etc. Coaches in every league at every level give similar lip service out of respect for their opponents.

So far this season, there have been a total of seven weekend conference series, and only once has a team…

Here’s a look back at the weekend that was in Atlantic Hockey: Cooling off Dan Rubin and I spent the last two weeks crowing about the league’s relatively strong start in non-conference play, so of course it was time for a letdown. After opening the season a respectable 6-7-5, AHC teams were just 0-6-2 this past weekend.
